I REALLY want to give this the full 5-star but I'm so disappointed with the second dress I ordered that I had to make note of it! First off, I'm 5'5" - 36C cup, weigh 136lbs and generally wear a size 4/6. I ordered dresses in two colors on July 15th- one in Purple and one in "Sea" Blue. I should have known there would be issues when it said that they had different delivery dates (i.e. DIFFERENT SELLERS)
So the first dress to arrive (on July 18th) was the purple, size Small-- and I cannot say enough good things about it! Fits like a total dream. The material is light but not cheap so it was perfect for a friend's day-time wedding/early-evening reception in Texas. The color itself is vibrant and rich and can be dressed up or down depending on how it's styled. At first I was a bit nervous about how low-cut it was and how much cleavage I was showing, but I adjusted the straps and "the girls" and was just fine! I was so comfortable (yay pockets!) and got so many compliments that I was definitely excited and looking forward to getting the 2nd dress in the mail too...
Unfortunately, ** WARNING ** some colors are sold by the authentic Eliacher and others are 3rd party sellers in China, and yes, there is a BIG difference in quality! The 2nd dress I received (on August 1st) was made from a cheaper fabric, had messy seams, unflattering pleating, a lower waistline and a neckline that was cut too narrowly to be flattering. If I hadn't gotten the authentic dress first, then I probably wouldn't be complaining as much- cheap price, cheap dress, pretty color, etc.- but I probably wouldn't be as in love with it as I am with my 1st dress!
Seriously, LOVE LOVE LOVE the real deal Eliacher dress! I'm still going to order more colors, just this time I'll be sure to verify the seller first!!!
I absolutely loved this dress. I wear a 14 and a LG would have fit perfect. I bought an extra large because of the petticoat and had extra room in breast area. Received lots of compliments. Will buy in another color.
This is a pretty dress but the small was a tad too big. I'm 5'5" size 0 and an xs would have fit better with this dress. I'm giving it 4 stars because the dress isn't lined and the material is a bit thin/see through. You'd need to wear a slip with it but since it's body con, you'd see the outline of the slip.
One of the best dresses I've bought my kids in quite awhile, in regards to structure of the material and looks on my girls. Classic and classy. However this is truly a 'twirling' dress and the skirt part is see through when the sun is behind it! So you might want a slip--although a classic petticoat might fill the purpose even better. A little sturdier belt hooks at the waist would make it easier for her to put it on herself. Some of the stitching has started to unravel and so far has been ok just tying it off. I'll bet she cries when she outgrows it!
I wasn't sure I would like the fabric on this dress. Everyone is using that heavy, bumpy Lularoe fabric lately. This fabric is soft and elegant, with just a touch of stretch. It is true to size. Such a nice summer dress! I bought it to wear to a wedding, and it is perfect! This is going to be my go to dress this year. I might buy it in more colors. Love it!
I am 5"6 and weight 165. I wear a 36DD breast and got a size large. It fits perfectly. I was worried because I am curvy with a large chest, but I fell in love with this dress as soon as I tried it on. I can wear it without a bra if I chose to surprisingly without looking "saggy" but I am wearing a strapless bra with mine to give a little extra support. The straps adjust so it hides the bra well. No complaints :)
This dress did fit a little bit big. I ordered a 2XL and the bust for the 2XL says 41.8", so I thought I would have a little bit of extra room. I have more than that. I am one of those people who has to shop for my boobs and not for the rest of my body, so I am not surprised that it is a bit bigger all over. But the bust is bigger than 41.8" I think. But the fabric is beautiful, and the colors are very true to the picture. I think I could have gotten away with an XL, due the 'give' of the fabric, but I am a good seamstress so I will just take it in a little in a few places and it will be just fine. I was wearing a bright floral bra and neon underwear and you can't even tell unless you press the fabric up close. You could totally get away with nude colored underwear and be just fine. A beautiful cloth sash came with the dress, although I forgot to put it on in the photos. This dress came to right below my knees, and has beautiful swing to it. I will pair with a petticoat and it will look amazing. All in all, will order again but maybe one size down.
My daughter wears a 10, is ten years old and of average build and height, but muscular and tight, hardly any body fat and has a flat tummy. I ordered the 9/10 and it fits with has plenty of room to grow. Even a tad too roomy in stomach area, bunches when belt is on. So glad I didn't order the 10/11.
We bought this in red with black dots for a swing dance in her dance recital. The fabric is thin but the top is lined, doubled. It ironed well. The belt really does stink! I washed it with soap and water, let it dry in the hot southwestern sun. Still stinks. It's ok, we are storing it in the garage until she needs it. I trimmed it easily with kitchen scissors.
She likes it so much she wore it for a piano recital. We put a little black cap-sleeve undershirt with it and it was darling.
YALL. I do not have enough good things to say about this dress. This is the second one I've bought in a different color and it does nothing but impress. It has just the right amount of sexy and classy. It is knee length so no accidental flashing, has adjustable straps that cross in the back for a great fit, and HAS POCKETS. It can be dressed up or down, I wore it to a wedding as well as to an afternoon of winery hopping. It's THAT versatile!
I wore this dress with one of those stick boob corset things and it fit great. 123838/10 would recommend!
Nice dress, simple and elegant. Got the 11/12 YR for my 11 year old who is 5"1 and 80 lbs. Length and fit is perfect except for parts under the arms is slightly loose but this was expected after reading all the online reviews. It's also true that this dress is not lined. Good for school day and play.
